Happy Thanksgiving: A Letter to Baby Boy

Dear Baby Boy,

Your daddy and I are so, so thankful for each other—and for you. You obviously don’t know this yet, but you have a lot to be thankful for, too. 

For starters, your daddy can cook a mean turkey (proof below), and my mashed potatoes (not pictured) are pretty ridiculous, too.

Mommy can't wait to devour this turkey.

Now, in seriousness, your daddy and I are very average people. We’re average looking, have average jobs, and we live in an average house. Our love, though—and the love we have for you—is not average. We're a couple of saps, and we just exude love. It’s stronger than anything I’ve ever known, and you’re so blessed to be a part of this little family, I promise. (As an aside, please don't be allergic to animals.) 

Our home is filled with so much love that it envelops you when you walk through the door. I’m not exaggerating when I say that the love here is tangible. I can’t wait for you to feel it, too. Can you already?

It’s common for people to say to each other, “You’ll never know how much I love you.” This is all wrong, Baby Boy. You’ll know every day how much I love you! How much your daddy loves you, too. We’ll tell you, we’ll show you, you’ll feel it in the air.

Happy Thanksgiving, Little Man.
